On a visit from Scotland we had a very pleasant and comfortable two-week stay at Wild Olive. The Garden Cottage was excellent with spacious bathroom, a bed so large that it required a cell phone to speak my wife and a sitting room with two comfortable arm chairs and sofa. Breakfast could not be faulted and the staff were unfailingly... More

Wild Olive is a home away from home. The rooms are well appointed, very comfortable and electric blankets in winter is an absolute bonus. The breakfasts are cooked with care, which I really appreciated. Friendly and professional staff, honesty bar and you really feel as if you're in your own home. You can also order dinner if you give notice,... More

Wild Olive is a most comfortable suburban house, ideally located for visitors to explore the peninsula and wider surrounds, or for someone seeking a sleepover while on business. The owner and staff are welcoming and helpful, daily breakfast is delightful and dinner, if required, is excellent value. Secure parking is available but needs to be booked ahead. Being near a...

When staying in Cape Town on business, Wild Olive is my first choice when it comes to accommodation. Come to think of it, when I'm in Cape Town on holiday, it also features prominently! It's location in relation to where I work is ideal and it has easy access to a useful road infrastructure to help me get around the... More

Wild Olive is a big old house, that allows me to feel at home. My home away from home when in CT. I stay here on business and when on holiday with my family. I have stayed here every month for the past year. Four reasons why I prefer staying at Wild Olive when in Cape Town. Friendly, organised staff.... More

This is the second time I have stayed at Wild Olive. Both times, my booking was handled with efficiency and my room was extremely comfortable. A really delicious breakfast is served daily which I thoroughly enjoyed. I will always stay there when in Cape Town.

The house is a beautiful restored Cape Town home with great amenities. Great breakfast and a reasonably priced evening meal if you want to stay home and just relax. The staff are really amazing and Gillian an absolute star!. I have stayed here for the last six months two nights a week and previously for a year at two nights... More

The location really is perfect for watching a game at Newlands. It is so close (walking distance) that the crowd on the stadium can be heard all the way to the room, too. We had a room at the top and it was nice, peaceful and comfortable, even if not extremely big. The house is old and traditional, but cute... More

We stayed here for 3 days in May as we wanted to be close to the Newlands Stadium. Our accommodation was beautiful, comfortable, clean - a home away from home. It was very safe, quiet and private. The staff were wonderful and always accommodating. We will definitely stay here again. We found it very relaxing - a great way to... More

This is possibly one of the best Guest Houses that I have ever stayed at, the accommodation was fantastic, food excellent and staff extremely helpful and professional! I have stayed at 5 Star Guest houses that weren't this good! I would definately recommend The Wild Olive Guest House to all!
